The Smiths

  • The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982.
  • In February 1984, the group released their debut album The Smiths, which reached number two on the UK Albums Chart.
  • The title of the popular book on The Smiths, Songs That Saved Your Life, refers to a line from the song "Rubber Ring."
  • Early in 1985 the band released their second album, Meat Is Murder. This album was more strident and political than its predecessor, including the pro-vegetarian title track (Morrissey forbade the rest of the group from being photographed eating meat), the light-hearted republicanism of "Nowhere Fast", and the anti-corporal punishment "The Headmaster Ritual" and "Barbarism Begins at Home".
  • Rourke was fired from the band in early 1986 due to his use of heroin.
